I’m thrilled that you’ve found my site so let me tell you a bit about me.
My name is Jen and I’m a mother to two sweet girls, Harper Lily and Hadley Violet, and married to my best friend, Aaron.
Back when I was pregnant with Harper, Aaron and I decided that I would stay home to raise our kids — and as much as this has been tough sometimes we’ve always known it was the right choice.
But as the kids got older and I got some freedom back, it felt like it was time I started to do something for me.
It all started with a desk and a dresser that a neighbour offered us. The furniture sat in our garage for a whole winter before I finally found the courage to experiment and transform it into something pretty.
That’s when I caught the furniture refinishing bug.
I had a vision for a hutch I wanted for my house so I found one on a local classified site and bought it. Then I found a great deal on a whole bedroom set that I just couldn’t pass up. And then, and then…
Slowly, I was gaining experience. Learning what to do, and what not to do.
I love working with my hands and being creative. I love having a business that stays exciting and constantly changing. And I’m so happy to be able to do something for myself that makes so many other people happy. So I haven’t looked back.
Now I’m thrilled to introduce my third baby — the Ivy Mae Studios website.
